How do you suggest I do it on the nitro? Solder deans to the battery and make an adapter to plug into the receiver?

Also I dont understand why people race without throttle return springs. If your battery runs out or switches off, the spring/rubber band will get your throttle to idle. I never run without them.
I only just seen this thread, great topic.

+1 on the throttle return.

I too have had glitching and complete switch failures in the past and changed to direct plug in, have never looked back since doing so, as mentioned previous... one less thing to fail, less wires to try and fit in the box, less resistance etc etc
I use the team magic connector (see photo) as I'm no good at soldering so can find a replacement battery in a hurry if mine fails in a race as most guys run the standard JR connector here (imagine running deans and need a quick replacenent and everyone runs JR) simply your screwed.

Run the throttle return spring and a mini-rubber band b/c I lifted the body once and noticed the spring wasn't there. Totally my fault for figuring out how to install it wrong.

I also run the KO Switch - love it.

hi ajo .. i run the battery wire directly into the receiver in my losi .. when the batry wire is not long enough i use extension wire , plug it into the receiver and join batry to it ..
you can get the ko propo electrical switch but its 50$ .. for 2 nitros it would be 100$ so i stayed away ..
throttle return use the rubber band or spring always (i had very bad experiences)..
